and because you know Free is For Me...

Wait for it... wait for it...

The open source project called Wave Bubble...

I don't know if you can build it out (Edit: take time in to consideration) (edit: its actually over $150 in parts) for under $48 but hey

A geek wants to build what a geek wants to build!
